How To Get Involved

How To Get Involved Top Pic
The McKeen Center offers a wide variety of ways to get involved in the community through service programs, leadership opportunities, community-based courses, research, fellowships, grants, and more.  If you are interested in finding service opportunities but don't know where to start, check out the information below and follow the links to find out more.

Student leadership is an important part of each of these programs and is what allows them to run smoothly.  If you're interested in becoming a leader for any of these programs, check out the individual pages to find more information on how.

If you cannot find a service opportunity that fits your interests also check out our Find a Partner page which provides contact information for non-profits in the area that you might be interested in working with.  Also, be sure to sign up for Service News by emailing Nhi Nguyen to keep up-to-date on service opportunities throughout the year. 

If you have any other questions or need further help finding the best service opportunity for you visit us in Banister Hall or contact Nhi Nguyen at nnguyen@bowdoin.edu or 798-4236.
